[VIDEO] C7 Corvette Z06 Reels In a Very Quick C8 Corvette Stingray


In this battle of neighboring Corvette generations, a stock C8 vs. a C7 Z06 slightly modified with a cold air intake, who do you think will win?

The new mid-engine Stingray has been wowing the automotive world with its blazing acceleration, going 0 to 60 in 2.8 seconds, a half-second better than the 3.3 seconds managed by the older Z06.

Today, YouTuber Can I Be Frank shares a video of a showdown between two examples of these brotherly speed demons, though we’ll again take the stance that such shenanigans need to be away from a public road and on a track instead.

But since we’re already here, let’s go ahead and see what happened.

In the first run, from a standstill, the C8 not surprisingly roars off to a big lead before finally falling way behind the fast-charging Z06. The comeback is also not surprising since the mid-engine car takes advantage of its new layout and dual-clutch transmission to record blistering starts, while in a longer race, the Z06’s supercharged 650 horsepower V8 pays off with a faster 0-100 mph time of 6.8 seconds, compared to the 7.6 of the C8.

From a rolling start, in the second run, the Corvette takes a slight lead for just a brief moment before the Z06 surges ahead and leaves it in the rearview mirror.

What we’d really like to see is the same matchup, but with a C8 Z06 taking on its older brother. Guess we’ll just have to wait a few more months for that, huh?

  1. The C7 Stingray is the true supercar! Beautifully styled, 59/50 balanced and in the ZO6 version more powerful than the current C8. Horsepower always wins in the end!

  2. Wow, the car with the more horsepower pulls away. I’ll be more interested to see what he C8 Z06 will do against the C7 Z06.
